A group of kind-hearted people in Mirfield is looking to raise funds for a project in Zimbabwe.

The Community of the Resurrection (CR) is hoping to bring in money to support a schools’ gardening project in the Masvingo diocese via a number of challenging activities.

The Zimbabwe project will create vegetable gardens at four schools, enabling them to grow their own produce.
